Ed takes his funk eslewhere
This my first oppurtunity to listen to Ed since he split from Hookah. I've been a hookah fan since an old friend filled the drummer slot for Steve Frye when he left eh in the mid ninties. So I'm familar w/ Eds progression through his hookah years.As a matter of fact I been out of touch w/ that whole scene on a Live aspect. I listen though through the archive and such as I'm always in the hunt for great music of any type. A previous reviewer spoke of the drug scene. I've been trying to turn my children on to new music not new drugs. That said without getting to far off track here my impulses told me to listen and hear what Ed can bring with his own creation. Not Bad. Baggage Claim soundeed like a Hookah reject, I can see why they (Dave and Ed) may have had a parting of their ways. This Bone U thught was defineitly (sic?) lacking the ( I have to turn the show off at this point its driving my daughter into hysterics I'm at about track 11, where was I? ) Oh yeah Bone was missing alot. I,ll for sure listen to their later shows to see if they worked that out.
So to carry on There is alot of "Treyesque Guitar and Lanese inspired to drums to Keep all camps happy.
I'll remember the Ed years fondly knowing all a long that Hookah should have never gotten rid of Mullins in the first place.
The thing that stands out in mind w/ this show is the lack of backing vocals for Ed. As for the song It Only Comes, well my gut says no thanks to disco on Extasy (for my taste). Good Luck Ed w/ this project. Most of the material I'm going to pass on and remember fodly and listen fondly to my 98-99 "legs of hookah missing a live Treehouse and Tea Rose.
I will dig further into my love for Ed's material and not be to stuck up as a die hard Hookah fan to not enjoy many aspects of Ed's preformance. Let it Grow I say, It's maybe not Dave and Sweeny fans cup of Tea but for a fan of some good ol' funk and blinding Psycadelia with dashes of jazz.fusion and even disco then this is the band for you. Good Luck and hopefully I'll see ya somewhere down the line. Peace to all who come to the Archive. Caio, Knox Lake Hippie

While I agree that this band is going places, I disagree with this being a place to bash bands. This recording is to date my favorite. Keep up the great work!

Why does it matter who's band is better than who's?
I thought the review portion of this website was to actually review the show that is posted rather than what band is good or what band is not.
After a few years, one would think that stuff like this would settle down, but alas....
As far as a review of this show goes. I have had an opportunity to listen to this show a number of times. I have also listened to every other show this band has posted on the archive. I would put this right up there with the 4-14-07 or 12-31-06 as far as quality of both recording and performance - perhaps even better. This show here, quite possibly is the best recording available at the moment on the archive - as well as the best representation of what the band has been doing musically.
There are some treats as far as mixing goes that you won't hear on any other show on the archive. Joyful Days Ahead, Alexander I, and Only Falling are perhaps the best source of the songs that I have ever heard. The taper/mixer did an excellent job capturing and preserving all of the nuances vocally and instrumentally and he deserves praise.
I'd say that if you would give this show a listen rather than blindly posting your own opinions about this band or that band you would see that you are, in fact, comparing apples to oranges. What's past is past. Download and listen to this show and please give your review on the status quo.
Ekoostik Hookah is definitely just a bunch of satan worshipping junkies hellbent on playing to even more satan worshipping junkies at their drugged out "HookahVille!" Sweeny - awesome solos (lay of the pipe asshole) Katz - superb keyboardist (lose the ego bud).
Mcgee's descision to leave was justifiable, and one under is by far better than hook. Ed writes better lyrics, catchier songs, and One unders percussion is better.
So all you hookah fans that are getting all gay about ripping on ED's band... Go back to hookahville, or as I like to call it... "A Drug Town with a Music Problem!" (hookahville officially has a catch phrase now) (make t-shirts you gaywads)

the recording sounds pretty good...its better to hear these guys than to actually see them...lol i just wish ed would play the guitar instead of leaving it hanging there like a prop in the "ed show"...but im not saying anything about how talented he is...i first started liking hookah with ed in the band so i will always like him...i just realize that john has that nasty disgustingness that hookah needs...they have gone to another level in the past year...one under is a damn good band...they just seem "put together" or "cliche"...but im still gonna give 5 stars for the good sound quality!!! thanks for the post

The music sounds good, and there is some real jamming in there . . . yet a lot of it sure does sound like a lot of EH arrangements. Folks turned off by all the self admiration and sorta fruity style sould give the music another try.
I thought the whole One Under thing was about new directions in music, so less Hookah songs and more fresh jams would be good for the band.

one under rocks...hookah rocks..
they both fuckin rock out..to have a grudge makes no sense i seen ed and john in a bar takin pictures the other week..yeah, the must really hate each other...one under rocked the barn down at pataskala and thats all there is to say..
i do like hookah better but i dont even think there comarable at all...and those are def. eds songs so its no cover band at all..peace
I don't quite understand how OU is a hookah cover band. The Hookah songs that OU plays are Ed songs. If you check on who wrote them you will find out that it was Ed. Hookah never co wrote any songs except for Under Full Sail, and that was Dave and John.
So according to you Ratdog would be a cover band since they play songs that Bob Weir wrote with the Dead.
As far as the hate, it seems to be coming from you. Maybe you're just jealous of Ed's hair.
I really don't understand the attitude of so many people that hold this grudge on Ed and One Under.
Where's your hippie attitude about kindness and people being free to make their own decisions. I'm really tired of the attitude of some Hookah fans that just want something to bitch about. I went though the whole thing in 96 when John was asked to leave and I've also been there for the return of John, at both ends of it all so many people just wanted to bitch.
If you've got something worth saying about the show say it.
I haven't heard the show yet since I downloading it now but I'll give some feedback on it when I hear it.
